CMB’s mission is to encourage, engage and equip our members to impact their community for Christ.
CMB’s Women in Radio is made up of ladies working at a radio station, a ministry, a record company, in promotions, artist management, or are connected to a Christian broadcaster. We believe there is power in connection and community. CMB Women in Radio is about nurturing, equipping, connecting and praying for one another.
Tell us about your family:
I married a radio guy, and we have the world’s worst cat, LBK (for Little Baby Kitty). He’s terribly dramatic and hisses at anything and everything, but he’s our buddy!
How long have you been in radio?
Give us your radio timeline:
I started as a board op at a country station in Amarillo, TX and have done just about everything, except engineering, since!
In addition to your role at WAWZ/WAKW, what else are you juggling?
My husband and I moved to the East Coast from the West Coast a little over two years ago, so we spend a lot of time exploring all the Northeast has to offer! We’re also active in our local church and volunteer for CMB.
Words of encouragement for other ladies in radio:
My team hears me utter the Alan Mason mantra incessantly, “Try it, Test it, Fix it”. The first step is to “try” so take risks and try stuff, but make sure you evaluate and adjust, too. Don’t be afraid to fail, it’s how you learn!
Can you recommend a book that is encouraging to you?
Necessary Endings by Henry Cloud. Fantastic book about putting an end to things that are not helping anyone move forward and how it’s the kind and right thing to do.
What are you most looking forward to at Momentum?
Learning from people smarter than me. ?
Convoy of Hope encourages women around the world to realize their value and reach their potential through job training and education. As a result, many enrolled in their Women’s Empowerment program now own a business that allows them to better feed and care for their children.
